Knowing that your attitude is that compatibility is everybody else's
job and not yours, I sure wouldn't have been quick to reply to you if I
were one of those package maintainers.

Perhaps it's not really what you meant to say, but when I read this
comment of yours:

> it is not the duty of bidi package to add support for other packages but
> other packages themselves have to add bidi support. bidi should only support

it created a very negative impression.  I get the idea that some of your
difficulties with other package maintainers may be to some extent of your
own making.

My own point of view is that compatiblity should involve effort and
accomodation on *both* sides.
